GLOBAL READING CHALLENGE FINALS AT DENNY: Denny International Middle School principal Jeff Clark explains what you’re invited to watch tonight:

In elementary schools across Seattle, kids look forward to competing in the Global Reading Challenge in partnership with the Seattle Public Libraries. We wanted to continue this fun reading competition at the middle school level, but the libraries weren’t able to expand. As a result, in partnership with Aki Kurose Middle School and the Nesholm Family Foundation, we’ve made own event. Each team read ten exciting books to prepare. Thank you to the fantastic Denny 6th and 7th grade literacy teachers, Ms. Nestor, and Mr. Treistman for making this happen! Congratulations to the four teams moving on to the final Global Reading Challenge (tonight) against Aki Kurose Middle School:

6th grade teams: Dave Kat and Books Yay
7th grade teams: Krusty Krab Krew and LOL

The in-house competition was full of excitement with the 7th grade teams battling it out to the final lightning round, and the 6th grade teams competing through two full rounds of questions – amazing reading, everyone. We are extremely proud of the over 175 scholars who participated! Come cheer on the final four when they compete against Aki (tonight) at 6:30 pm in the Denny/Sealth Auditorium. Read on, Dolphins!
